Paul Pogba is a professional football player who is currently playing for Manchester United and the French national team.
In 2016 when Man United signed the Frenchman for €105 million, he became the most expensive player at the time. The transfer fee the Red Devils paid for Pogba still remains the highest the club gave for a player.

Paul Pogba was born in Lagny-sur-Marne, Seine-et-Marne, in a family of Guinean parents. After seven seasons spent with the club, he moved to US Torcy, where he was the team captain for the club's under-13 team.
When Pogba was only 16-year-old, he joined Manchester United on 31 July 2009. In 2011 the French player was promoted to the senior team of Manchester United.
He made his debut in the Premier League against Stoke City on 31 January 2012.
Pogba joined Juventus back in 2012, after he did not renewed his contract with the Red Devils. Sir Alex Ferguson stated that his move to Juventus was “disrespectful to the club.”
Pogba spent four years with the Old Lady. After just one season with the club he in 2013 received the “Golden Boy” award, the Frenchman also played in the Serie A and the UEFA Champions League.
In 2014, Pogba was named one of the most promising young players in Europe.
With Juve, Pogba won the Serie A four times, twice Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana.
However, after four years spent with Juventus in 2016 Manchester United signed Pogba for a record fee of €105 million.
Since he joined United, the Frenchman helped them win the EFL Cup and the UEFA Europa League in 2017.
According to Wealthy Gorilla, Paul Pogba’s net worth in 2020 is $85 million.
He became one of the 50 highest paid athletes on the planet as between the 2017 and 2018 period he earned $30 million from salary and endorsements.
Unsurprisingly, Pogba's salary is among the highest at Manchester United. It was reported that the player is earning £290,000 per week, which means that his annual salary is around £15.08m.
The 27-year-old French international is earning a big amount of money, but he deserves it, as he is one of the most successful midfielders at the moment, despite the injuries.
